Pennsylvania Secretary of Banking and Securities Robin L. Wiessmann will deliver opening remarks and WHYY's Mark Eichmann will moderate the discussion of a distinguished panel:
- Jack Bogle, The Vanguard Group
- Dr. Andrew Hill, Economic Education Advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia
- Cindy Hounsell, President, Women's Institute for Secure Retirement (WISER)
- Dr. Joseph Friedman, Professor of Economics, Temple University
"With 45 percent of Americans having nothing saved for retirement, our country is facing a serious financial challenge in the coming decades," said Wiessmann. "In Pennsylvania, we are taking proactive steps to meet this challenge head-on. With the production of 'When I'm 65,' we are helping provide information and tools so that our citizens can better plan how to fund their retirements."
The town hall is free and will be held at WHYY's studios, 150 North Street in Philadelphia on October 26 at 6:00 PM. No tickets are needed; however advance registration is required. Visit www.whyy.org/events.
"When I'm 65" is made possible with support from Detroit Public Television, the Investor Protection Trust, the Investor Protection Institute, and the Pennsylvania Department of Banking and Securities.
